Hi Eric,

This patch fixes a typo in the help for CONFIG_PPC.

Of course we can discuss whether the PPC is the successor to the 68000 series
or to the 88000 series...

Perhaps it's best to not mention the 88000, else people will think they found
another CPU that doesn't run Linux yet :-)


Gr{oetje,eeting}s,

when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.

I like the assurances that the PowerPC is a "capable" processor.  Perhaps
even adequate.  Perhaps we should note that Dave has yet to take me up on
my challenge to the sparc to sissy-slap the PowerPC...
